I have seen this recently myself.  I have win98 and win2kpro boxes at a 
customer site so the scripts have 2 different entries.

For win 98 

net use h: /HOME

 this works fine but fails to fly on my 2k boxes.  NT4 is happy with this too.

for my 2k boxes

net use h: \\chamber-gw\%USERNAME%

works great but gags a big one on the 9X and NT4 boxes.  Since I have several 
sites were the user might go to a 9x one time and a 2k another, I have both 
listed.  One of them always fails depending on the OS but one always works.  
I am running 2.2.1a on some systems and am in the process of upgrading to 
2.2.5 on the others.  The 2k boxes are on SP3.
